Dozens of classic cars lined up in the parking lot of Rev’d Up Coffee & Classics Sunday for the monthly Cars and Coffee event bright and early at 6:45 a.m.
The Claremont coffee shop at 212 West Foothill Blvd. had live music and breakfast for car enthusiasts to indulge in while they browsed the cars brought by the customers themselves.
A variety of classic cars were on display, including old Volkswagen bugs and vans, a Ford Falcon with a sticker on the back that said “It’s a hybrid, It burns gas and oil,” a Ford Cobra and a Chevrolet Chevelle SS.
Rev’d Up Coffee & Classics has an old-timey look with a modern vibe. Various American car signs and drawings adorn the walls, with motorcycles and helmets inside.
It also offers a balanced menu, including breakfast sandwiches, burritos and the “Prius Sandwich,” a vegan option.
The monthly event is family- and pet-friendly, with several furry friends on hand Sunday.
Rev’d Up owner Steven Solis said the most enjoyable part of this event is interacting with customers, as he kept himself busy making the rounds to bring out food and talking with most of the people in the shop.
Solis also said that Rev’d Up has been hosting this event every month since mid-2020, and there are plenty of regulars.
“I enjoy the fellowship and just learning about cars,” said Gene Huffman, who was there Sunday showing his 1933 Ford.
Linda Sanches was there snapping photos at the Sunday event with her husband. The couple’s love for “authentic things” is what she said brought her back to this event for a third time.
“You get to see how one thing can bring different people together,” Sanchez said.
The next Cars and Coffee at Rev’d Up is 6:45 a.m. to 11 a.m., Sept. 25.
